Excellent Comedy touches
28 February 2007 | by psybokSee all my reviews

After watching this episode, I hope that things truly do change for Hurley. He is such a likable character that you want him to be in a better place. Sawer kind of surprised me here as well. He came up to Hurley all ticked off wanting his "stuff" but seemed genuinely touched by Hurley's welcome back hug. Of course the more we see of Sawyer, or James if you will his wall of being this tough-guy can artist is slowly crumbling. As for Hurley though it was interesting to see Cheech Marin show up as his errant father in the flash-back sequences. I always enjoy the Hurley-centric episodes for the comedy elements they bring to the show. After last weeks traumatic events, it is nice to have this for a little break
